Today I had to #dig
for a little whypower!!! I have three main why's to why I live a #healthy
management, my #control
issues (yes I know this seems like it would reinforce control issues but that explanation is for a different post), and my nephew.
I learned a long time ago #willpower
does not work. But #whypower
does!!! So whenever I set a #goal
I need to #digdeep
to put some WhyPower behind it.
Well as most of you know I am prepping for my fall show season. As a result I'm eating to lose body fat and adding a little #cardio.
Well I came across this awesome new three week program that allows you to ease into a #healthier
you. I really wanted to run a challenge group featuring this plan. So I did... but I decided to fully participate in the workouts.
So what's that mean... lots of extra workouts for me for the next few weeks. (Plus some extra food so I don't lose too much weight)
This week has been long. I had lots of extra work hours between covering at the vet, introducing new dogs to our daycare, and private lessons. Plus 5 extra workouts.
Today I got home from my morning dog introduction session and really wanted to skip the #suana
. Well I thought about it and was like... hmm I am #sore
maybe I should skip a #workout
and do the suana... well no I committed to the workouts so I need to do them... ok I'll skip the #suana
Then my little #angel
Rett popped into my head. I had no reason to skip my suana time other than to relax. The suana is #relaxing
so I figured I could not pass up on a #detox
and some relaxation time.
I knew this meant my workouts would be a struggle but I reminded myself of two things... 1. If it doesn't challenge you it doesn't change you so do your best and forget the rest (like my tattoo states although it's a little hard to read in the photo)
2. I promised Rett I would live the healthiest life I could!! So what happened... my WHYPOWER pushed me through the day and I succeeded at all my workouts and suana time. (On a side note I'm kissing my owl sleeve because that is Rett's memorial tattoo since owls were his spirit animal)
Have you found your whypower?
